Ilyes Baghli was born in Algiers, Algeria, in 1968. He was also educated in Algiers, where he received his Bachelor of Science in 1986, and graduated from the Faculty of Medicine in 1992. He has been in private practice since then.

Dr. Baghli married in 1997 and has a son and two daughters. He loves to travel and enjoys holidays with his family.

During the 25 years after receiving his medical degree, Dr. Baghli studied mesotherapy, osteopathy and acupuncture. Yet, he was unable adequately to treat his chronically ill and cancer patients. This changed when he began to learn about Orthomolecular Medicine. In 2009, he attended a nutritional medicine conference in Salzburg, Austria, and embarked on a project to start a society for scientific study and education in Orthomolecular Medicine. In 2011, he founded the Algerian Society for Nutrition and Orthomolecular Medicine (SANMO) and serves as its first President. The SANMO joined the International Society for Orthomolecular Medicine the same year, and began holding training seminars and conferences, inviting international experts, including ISOM President Dr. Atsuo Yanagisawa, to present to a growing number of doctors. On behalf of SANMO Dr. Tahar Naili, Vice President, attended the 41st Orthomolecular Medicine Today Conference in Vancouver, Canada in 2012, and in 2017, Dr. Baghli himself attended the 46th Orthomolecular Medicine Today Conference in Toronto, Canada.

In 2014, Dr. Baghli was recognized for his work with an award from the Institut Antoine Bechamp and that year he also joined the board of the Japanese College of Intravenous Therapy.

In 2016 SANMO celebrated its 5th anniversary and received greetings and congratulations from orthomolecular leaders around the world. Dr. Baghli has been very active, publishing 36 “OrthoBulletins”, hosting numerous conferences and educational seminars, and presenting at other international conferences, all to reach his goal of creating a strong presence for Orthomolecular Medicine in Algiers and setting an example for other countries.

On June 1, 2023, Dr. Ilyes Baghli was appointed as the President of the International Society for Orthomolecular Medicine, during the 52nd Annual International Conference in São Paulo, Brazil.
